Alongside Blanka’s rightful return to the game’s cast, today’s update for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will bring with it the expected bout of server maintenance.
As shared by the official Street Fighter V server Twitter account, the maintenance will start at 11:00 AM Pacific Time (2:00 PM Eastern) and run until 5:00 PM Pacific (8:00 PM Eastern).
We will perform server maintenance from 11am to 17pm on 2/20 PST. Thank you for your patience and support.

We can also expect some gameplay fixes along with Blanka, as promised by Capcom — though not specifically for today.
As with any maintenance period for Street Fighter V, players will still be able to play the game offline — but players will not be able to earn any Fight Money during the maintenance period. nor (presumably) any Extra Battle mode rewards.
